    You missed Germany because that's AAA and as such implied it's AA
    Anyway as I understand it the lower the credit rating teh higher the cost of borrowing.

    When was that?
    The market does not pay a massive amount of attention to credit ratings because markets function on a daily basis whereas credit ratings are based on a judgement of things over several months (which have been priced in already, daily). Where credit ratings are important is in relation to pension funds since any pension fund claiming to be low risk will only invest in AAA stuff.

    Of course you should also remember back to 08 and the AAA sub prime mortgages before claiming too much faith.

    I don't have massive faith in capitalists but I do get worried in the economy.

    I'm no linguist, but I'm pretty sure "joining the single market" is, in fact, a phrase 😉
